Antone’s has served as playground for Stevie Ray Vaughan, Shakey Graves and other music greats. This year they’re celebrating their 43rd Anniversary with a month of concerts kicking off June 29th. Antone’s took a two year break, changed locations and venues in 2014-2015 but its back and better than ever. We’re ready to celebrate this legendary music venue.
"The Peterson Brothers are particularly adept at a smooth, funky, groove-laden type of blues that requires a mastery of both musical timing and onstage rapport. The fact that they're succeeding on all fronts as teenagers makes it that much more impressive." Elmore Magazine 2014
The Peterson Brothers were born and raised deep in the "Lost Pines" of Bastrop, Texas. Alex, 15, on bass and violin and vocals; and Glenn Jr., 18 on guitar and lead vocals are two brothers, one sound. Their music combines the classic blues sounds of legends with their own unique blend of soul-infused inspiration.
In just a few short years they have had the opportunity to open for B.B. King and the Willie Nelson, Los Lonely Boys. Lisa Marie Presley, and many more. They have also played with Buddy Guy, Michael Burks, Pinetop Perkins. The Peterson Brothers have also gained the attention of the legendary Bootsy Collins who has become one of their mentors.
The band has just completed their debut album "The Peterson Brothers " with Michael Freeman, who produced the Grammy Award Winning "Joined at the Hip" by Pinetop Perkins and Willie "Big Eyes" Smith.
Although much of their time is spent honing in on their musical gifts, they put precedence on volunteering and ensuring that their academics are a top priority. The Peterson Brothers are on a mission to help "Keep the Blues Alive".
